WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Contractors have completed the construction phase of the renovations to Wilmington's Municipal Golf Course.

Crews doubled the size of the greens, and approaches and bunkers were restored to the original Donald Ross specifications.

New irrigation was added, drainage was improved, and bunkers and cart paths have been installed. Crews also overhauled the practice putting green.

The Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors also chipped in and helped crews with sanding and painting the exterior of the clubhouse.

This is the first time the 'Muni' has undergone a complete renovation since the course debuted in 1929.

Officials believe the course will be ready for play sometime in October.
